Mazatlan Tour: Stone Island or Deer Island?
 
We will be in Mazatlan in October via the Carnival Cruise Ship Splendor. Our group consists of 6 adults and 6 children (ages 8 thru 15). Which tour would you suggest....Stone Island or Deer Island? My husband, my 2 children and I have been to Mazatlan before in 2005 and did not book a tour. As this was not one of my favorite ports last time I wanted to make sure we had a more positive experience as the rest of our group has never been to Mexico.

Stone Island is a lot of fun. You do not need a tour. As you leave the cruise ship terminal, turn left and walk about 1/2 mile. Look for the little "embarkadero" sign. They will take you there for $2 p.p. round trip on a little panga. The island is very close to where the cruise ship docks. You'll have a great beachy day at a very low cost. There are some very nice beach restaurants there too!

I went last year with my two kids, ages 4 and 9 at the time, we did Stone Island and they loved it. It is well worth the cost wen we booked thru Mazatlan Tours, our family of four cost us about $100 and that included our meals, all you can drink, the tour on the boat, which we all enjoyed, and then activities at the beach. My older daughter and I kayaked while my husband and younger daughter went out on a quad. Well worth the money. I am going back in Novemeber with no kids and am seriously looking at trying the Deer Isalnd one this time so I would love some feedback if anyone has been on it.

My friend and I will be onboard Splendor from Oct 17 - 24, 2010.
let me know if you will be on the same time.

sorry this is my first cruise and first time to Mazatlan, so I can't be of any help.
